Case Studies in Geriatric Primary Care Multimorbidity Management E Book Book Excerpt:

Gain expertise in primary care of older adults with a case-based approach to geriatric primary care and multimorbidity management. Written by two leading academic and clinical experts in geriatric primary care, Case Studies in Geriatric Primary Care and Multimorbidity Management, 1st Edition uses detailed Exemplar Case Studies and Practice Case Studies to teach you how to think like an expert geriatric clinician. Because most older adults have more than one condition when seeking care, both Exemplar and Practice Case Studies place a strong emphasis on "multimorbidity" management, (the management of patients with a host of complex, interacting conditions). To provide extensive practice in learning how to think like an expert, case studies reflect the reality that care does not necessarily begin or end in the primary care setting. Cases therefore move fluidly from primary care to acute care to inpatient rehabilitation to assisted living to long-term care. Building on foundational introductory chapters, cases also call on you to develop interprofessional collaboration skills and reflect the diversity of today's older adults, in terms of age (young-old to old-old), gender, culture, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and more! As you work through both basic-level and advanced Practice Case Studies, you can make extensive notes in the printed book and then go online to submit answers for grading and receive expert feedback for self-reflection. NEW! Introductory unit on the core principles of caring for older adults gives you a strong foundation in the principles of geriatric primary care and multimorbidity management. NEW! and UNIQUE! Exceptionally detailed, unfolding Exemplar Case Studies demonstrate how an expert advanced practitioner "thinks clinically" to provide care to older adults with multiple conditions. NEW and UNIQUE! Exceptionally detailed, unfolding Practice Case Studies emphasize patient diversity and multimorbidity management across healthcare settings to help you develop advanced clinical reasoning skills for geriatric primary care. NEW and UNIQUE! Strong emphasis on multimorbidity management focuses on caring for older adults with multiple chronic conditions. NEW! Emphasis on the continuum of care across settings reflects the reality that care does not necessarily begin or end in the primary care setting but can move from primary care to acute care to inpatient rehabilitation to assisted living to long-term care, and so forth. NEW! Online answer submission for grading and expert feedback for self-reflection. NEW! Emphasis on patient diversity reflects the makeup of today's older adult, population in terms of age (young-old to old-old), gender, culture, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and more.

Lifestyle Psychiatry Investigating Health Behaviours for Mental Well Being Book Excerpt:

Recent years have seen a substantial increase in both academic and clinical interest around how ‘lifestyle behaviors’, such as exercise, sleep and diet, can influence mental health. The aim of this Research Topic is to produce a novel body of work contributing towards the field of ‘Lifestyle Psychiatry’; i.e. the use of lifestyle interventions in the treatment of mental disorders. In this way, the Research Topic aims to (a) present important ‘behavioral targets’ for lifestyle modification in public health and/or clinical settings, and (b) examine the efficacy and implementation of lifestyle interventions for people with mental health conditions. Collectively, this research presented within this Research Topic can increase understanding and inform evidence-based practice of ‘Lifestyle Psychiatry’, while providing clear directions for future research required to take the field forward.
